Use a DC Power Supply?

Hello....
I have 3 amp trip lite dc power supply that puts out 13.8 V.

When my batteries are out of my boat during winter, any reason why I shouldn't use this for 12 V power on the boat?....as in drop the battery switch pos and neg leads on to the power supply terminals and plug it in?

I know 3 amps isn't much but all I'd be using would be radio, lights, CD player, propane sniffer/switch etc.

Thanks!!
